Refer A Child

Children’s caregivers or their teachers, counselors, or social workers can initiate the enrollment process. The online intake questionnaire will take 15-20 minutes, is confidential and will only be seen by authorized staff.  An Avary staff will follow-up with a phone call if they have further questions. 

Children may enroll in Project Avary at any time during the year. 
To be eligible, a child must:

  • Have an immediate family member who is currently or recently incarcerated  in jail, prison, immigration custody, on probation or parole, or otherwise involved with the criminal justice system.
  • Be age 8, 9 or 10
  • Have at least one adult who can support the child through the application process. This includes filling out forms, making sure the child is packed and ready for camp, and gets to our van pick-up spot on time
  • Live in Marin, Sonoma, San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa or Solano counties
